New BoD members

I also think that the sn board election might be better served moving away from the SNAC and SNPC. The first board was formed at the baton rouge SNPC and the championships were used since there are typically a lot of players at the championships. However saying that, when dealing with the SPNC last week...a situation like that isn't a good time to be transitioning. I think there should be a coesive board in place for all the chamionships. A suggestion might be go calender year and have ballots available at the howler and lee naquin (two of the sn's most attended as well as online voting. End voting mid december and have the new board in place Jan 1.

Just a thought...

Lloyd brought the idea of a BoD member being the co-td for each championship.....So what if the 3 current BoD members each pick a championship to co td for the 2012 SNC. The 3 members voting in now each pick a SNC for 2013. That way when running for the BoD TDing an event can be a tool for the players to help judge who would make a good BoD member....

The only issue is if any BOD member wouldn't be able to attend even 1 SNC, then asking for the person not to play. For example I may only make SNDC, and you best bet I would be there to play after driving 5 hours.

This could also lead to The BOD looking Place SNC's near there areas. I wouldn't see this BOD doing it but ya never know about the future.

Here's a thought question. What if you get a BOD to help run an event, have a say in the payout and cash in the TOP 3 of the SNPC. any controversy there? Likely not going to happen but you never know!

Also, as a coach in the Arkansas High School Athletics, I get reimbursed for the mileage I put in when traveling to games. I get paid .43 per mile. That could help with a 5 hr drive. I still think people need an incentive to volunteer as a BOD.

No BOD member should be mandatory to co-td a tournament. What BOD member is not only going to volunteer their time but a few hundreds of dollars to CO-TD a tournament only to be bashed a year? LOL.

My point being said was this: most players including myself who travel the distance for a championship, would want to play. When I get the O.K. from my wife to go play..........I bolt out of the door. If I can travel, I will want to play. Getting paid mileage to go play might not mesh well with others, but it was something to think about.

We all are talking about the SN here and hoping we get great volunteers to step up and run the show. I think "like I said before" there needs to be a better incentive for BOD.

Eric brings up a good point. Not saying it would happen, but once you open the door to forcing BoD members to be at particular events, it could sway the voting for the championships.

I do like the idea though. There needs to be a better support system for our TDs from the BoD. I'm going to present an idea to the new BoD at our first meeting to help alleviate some of the pressure. Yes, our TDs should be familiar with all of the rules, but when under pressure, sometimes things get hazy and confusing. We need to be there to help shoulder some of the responsibility and protect our TDs.

We can't survive without our TDs.

Almost two weeks, who are the new members? I'll reiterate, the SN surely doesn't want another controversy. It seems as though this is going to become one.
Re: New BoD members

No controversy just an unforeseen delay....Leslie should have the last of the votes, I sent the envelope with the votes and ballots to Lesie priority mail on Tuesday. I was planning on being at the SNPC and deliver them to her there but my air force reserve trip was extended when we couldn't get back into Keesler AFB in Biloxi because of tropical storm lee on Friday Sept 2.

That caused me to miss the SNPC as well. I didn't get back home until Wednesday, Sept 7 then was distracted at that point. Drill weekend last weekend as well (back to Biloxi from Little Rock) so I apologize to all for the delay....it is my fault. They don't want to announce anything without ALL the votes beng accounted for.

You know you sure say that I like a lot of drama and I'm always involved in it... but you sure are trying to stir up something here aren't you.

It has been explained several times... John was tied up do to weather and his job with the military. Can we not respect that?

I'm not a big fan of that... that opens the door for the last minute "phone in" votes to just edge someone out. Just sayin.

Is the mail that slow or is there a problem counting?

Maybe they are still checking to make sure all of the voters played in at least one of the correct divisions under at least one of their aliases in at least one of the correct seasons.
